Filed under Editorial, Lifestyle

People, summer is right around the corner. After April break we’re honestly just a few final exams and projects away from June 11- when we can all take a huge collective sigh of relief. While a lot of us probably do have insanely busy summers, with not a lot of pure free time (I’m looking at you IB assessments), it’s important...

Why Big Time Rush is the Superior Boy Band

Why Big Time Rush is the Superior Boy Band

March 22, 2019

They collaborated with Snoop Dogg, what other boy band did? Nobody, because Snoop Dogg has taste and wanted to only create the song Boyfriend with them. They had their own tv show that was amazing. The intricacy of the characters such as Guitar Dude really added to the overall entertainment experience. They were unproblematic so were exceptional role models to look up to. The concert experience was out of this world. I may be a little biased because I went to two of their concerts, but I watched in awe as I was breathing the same air as them. One Direction actually opened up for Big Time Rush in their concerts, so remember where you started. No tea no shade… Each one of them had something for everyone, Logan was the nerd, Carlos was the daredevil, James was the dream boy, and Kendall was the star. I truly hope that they get back together, as Kendall and Carlos have dropped hints about their reunion. Theirs is the only reunion that I care about and will ever care about....
